Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I reinstalled CVSNT which seems to have corrected the original problem.
Turns out I will have to go back to pserver anyway because I am using
